Moon rising over Cape Town – Flickr pic of the day

Blog Featured Image

This beautiful image of the moon rising over Cape Town city centre was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Tara Turkington aka flowcomm.

Tara says, “I took this picture the evening before the Final Draw of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in Cape Town. I went up Table Mountain in the cable car at about 6pm with a friend and work colleague, and we had dinner and a glass of wine at the superb restaurant on top, while the sun set over the sea and mountains around us.

“We caught the last cable car down and found a party of diski dancers from Gugulethu around our car. We joined the fun and partied with them as the gorgeous harvest moon rose to the north.

“There was a line of tiny silver lights coming down Lion’s Head – the headlamps of climbers who go up that mountain and come down in the moonlight each full moon. It was very beautiful.

“I got chatting to one of the diski dancers, which led to our company, Flow Communications, employing his younger sister as a junior project manager in Johannesburg next year. It’s amazing how Table Mountain and Cape Town can connect people!”
